1. The shape of tiled roof that expresses the curvature and magnificence of the Korean tradition.

2. Configured to a person involved in an exciting masked dance, lively spatial expression full of joy and experience.

3. As the open gateway that leads to new traditional culture, it expresses expectation and excitement.

4. Borrowing the traditional cloudscape pattern, it renders the graceful dignity of grand nature, leisurely rest area, and the space that accommodates the passage of time and the seasonal changes.

5.It represents the vision of KFV that creates new value and meaning of traditional culture on the foundation of Korea’s history and tradition. > Less more
